Hello there, June!

And hello, blogging world! Mommy Ches is back! I slacked off, yeah, but I’m back with a lot of lessons and tips from the two month hiatus. So, be ready for a lot of posts this month including:

  • Our family trip to Hong Kong
  • Birthday party planning
  • Foodie experiments
  • Z’s milestones and developments

I’m also excited to move to my own domain sometime this month! More online opportunities for me to explore. And if you want to sponsor a giveaway as I re-launch my blog, do send me an email at mrsbry126[at]gmail[dot]com.

June has always been the month for new beginnings, possibilities and challenges. I’m so ready for you, June, bring it on!

Baked Cream Dory

This is a recipe from our helper’s former boss. Our helper, Ate Nida, tweaked it a little bit (to add more taste). It’s really yummy and best of all, healthy! It’s part of our monthly menu because all the ingredients are just in stock. Try it for yourself!

You need:

  • 2 pieces cream dory fillet
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • ¼ tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 can mushrooms
  • rosemary
  • bay leaf
  • salt and pepper to taste

Here’s what you will do:

  1. Melt the butter in a non-stick pan. Once melted, add 1 tablespoon of flour then mix well. Follow with the remaining flour.
  2. Once incorporated, slowly add the milk while mixing. You’ll then have a basic white sauce. Ate Nida thins it out with a little bit of water.
  3. Add the mushrooms, rosemary, bay leaf, salt and pepper. Mix well.

  4. Put the white sauce on top of the cream dory fillets.

    ready for the oven!
  5. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 375°C.
Pair with a simple salad and you're good to go!

A yummy and healthy treat! Can’t wait for Z to try it!
